England batsman Jonny Bairstow has been reprimanded and given one demerit point by the ICC after being found guilty of "use of an audible obscenity during an international match". The England batsman was found guilty of a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the fifth T20I match against New Zealand at Eden Park in Auckland on Sunday. The incident occurred in the seventh over of England's innings after his dismissal, and was picked up by the stump mic and "heard on TV". Incidentally, England won the game in Super Over after the match ended in a tie, clinching the series 3-2. The 30-year-old was found to have violated Article 2.3 of the ICC’s code of conduct for players and player support personnel. He admitted to the offense and accepted the sanction after the match. After the day’s play, Bairstow admitted the offense and accepted the sanction proposed by Andy Pycroft of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing. The charge was leveled by on-field umpires Wayne Knights and Chris Gaffaney and third umpire Christopher Brown as well as fourth umpire Shaun Haig.

Having previously received a reprimand for swinging his bat at the stumps on being dismissed during an ODI against Pakistan in May. If a player accrues four demerit points over a period of two years, they are suspended for one Test match or two limited-over internationals. Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.
